I spent my weekend mostly indoors, recovering from some nasty intestinal bug. I had wanted to go to Tokyo, but it was good to chill out, watch the videos I got from Tom. Tom is a video rental shop, not a person! Well, I do have a neighbor named Tom, actually. He doesn't have videos, though. The two movies were "Orange County" and "Finding Forrester". I didn't know before I got them, but both movies are about young, aspiring writers. Totally different kinds of movies, though. I recommend both for my students. (Check out my favorite movies in my Profile for other recommended flicks!)
On Sunday, I actually got up enough energy to go for a bike ride. While riding past some gardens, I met an interesting group of people. They are members of an international garden group called GROUNDWORK. They try to make cities better and friendlier places by planting community gardens. I'm hoping to get out and help them with the garden near my house.
